If there was anyone who was legitimately seasonally confused, it would be me. This is what I wore in yesterday’s 85 degree weather:
And that is a thick denim vest, from a time when denim was denim and not some strange thin polyester spandex blend of fabric that rips at the thought of fence hopping or introductory skateboarding lessons or even a five minute sit on rough concrete steps-basically all that being a youngin’ in North Philly entails.
Durable denim still existed in the ’80s, when my mother bought a Guess by Marciano jean jacket which you now see as a vest on me. I chopped the sleeves off so I hope that is some indication that I am at least slightly conscious that it is still summer.
My $5.00 BDG skinnies are not of this tough variety of denim, but they fit so well in the Goodwill dressing room that I decided I’d just be careful when wearing them.
Boots in warm weather also kind of make no sense. But, fifty cent yard sale cowgirl boots always make sense.
